Line-of-Business Application Migration
Cloud migrations take many paths. You may migrate line-of-business applications such as moving QuickBooks from a server-based version to the cloud version. The most popular migration businesses are taking advantage of is Microsoft 365. Businesses are moving their on-premises Microsoft environment including email, Office, SharePoint, and all its data, to a new cloud model known as the Modern Desktop.
On-premises Applications to Software-as-a-Service Migration
Other businesses may be looking to assess their on-premises applications for SaaS alternatives. Today, most off-the-shelf applications purchased are likely to be hosted on a server in the cloud or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Known as a “lift and shift”, this migration evaluates how best to optimize app performance once in the cloud, understand associated costs, and ensure the effectiveness of the security measures in the IaaS environment.
Custom Application Migration
Businesses who have in-house or custom developed applications might be looking at re-platforming or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Most businesses can significantly reduce the costs and complexity of a custom application while enhancing capabilities by leveraging PaaS. While this requires significant upfront effort to evaluate the existing application(s), design, and thorough testing, the pay-off can be significant.
